SexPositive Portland is a real community of open-minded, fun, and awake people. We provide a chance to explore, learn, and grow in a safe, welcoming, and consensual environment. We offer sex education for adults, touch positive events, dances and discussion groups.
We are a private group through Meetup. This means that no one outside of the Sex Positive Portland Meetup member group can see your profile or know that you are a member.
Our mission is to change the world by promoting healthy sexuality through community and education. We value healthy sexuality that is created through autonomy, boundary setting, enthusiastic consent, and pleasure. We are creating a community based on direct communication, social justice, connection, fun, and support. We value accessible education focused on experiences and growth, and replacing unhelpful patterns of behavior through a diversity of new ideas.
We are a member/volunteer organization. Our members plan and host events centered around understanding and exploring all aspects of human sexuality, consent, relationship styles, kink, gender, and orientation. We are a diverse and welcoming community
Our real world events include classes, discussion groups, workshops, socials, parties, festivals, and more. They range from member hosted events (in homes, parks, restaurants, etc.), outings together where we might go watch and signature events (facilitated events like our snuggles, couple/triads massages, and parties), that are created by SexPositive Portland and led by its core volunteers.
If you are not yet a member of SPP, you can still come to some of our events to meet us, check us out, and learn a few things. Head over to our public events page!
Sex positivity is a social movement and philosophy which regards all consensual expressions of sexuality as healthy, encourages sexual pleasure and experimentation, places an emphasis on informed consent and advocates sex education and risk-aware sex. Sex-positivity makes no moral distinctions among types of sexual expression, orientation or identification, regarding these choices as matters of personal preference.
